Well, I *was* wondering: I just tried it and it works.

I created 2 raid1 md disks and an lvm volume group on each. I used the first one to create a single logical volume that I used for /boot (falling prey to an ancient superstition stating that /boot must stay on the first cylinders) while I created multiple logical volumes on the second one (/, /usr, /home etc.)

For a moment I toyed with the idea of writing a short page on debonaras about this but now I think that everything just worked as it should and I was simply overly apprehensive...
